How Soon is NOW?!

Was out dancing last night til 2am. It was worth the tiredness though. The club we went to is this place in Cambridge called Manray where on most nights it's a goth club and/or a gay club. But on Saturday nights they have a more mainstream new wave night where they play 80s alternative, industrial, goth, and new wave music. There's still a huge goth and/or gay scene that attends the club, but there's no dress code or gender preference requirement to get in the door.

Anyhow, for those of you following the "RT DJ who didn't know The Smiths" thread I've been weaving in and out of posts since attending the St. Louis Roaring 20's party, you will be VERY HAPPY to know the lovely DJ at Manray (on his own accord!) played HOW SOON IS NOW by the Smiths. The very song I've been waiting to dance to for three weeks now!! Needless to say, I was soooo excited!!

He went on to play many more 80s new wave classics from The Cure, Violent Femmes, Depeche Mode, Morrissey, Duran Duran, New Order, Joy Division, etc. etc. etc. I danced 3 HOURS STRAIGHT, stopping only to get water. (I was driving and not drinking.) It was soo much fun. I love dancing to that kind of music. It brings back such memories. Just makes me so happy. There's some kind of magic in dancing. And I love the idea that people of all backgrounds and styles and philosophies can get together and become one on the dance floor.

The book party beforehand was a lot of fun too. Very fancy - with a bartender and catered food. I've never had someone throw me a party with catererd food before! It was so sweet of my friend to do so. People have been so nice about the whole book thing. I think everyone had a good time at the party. I know I did. My friend made adorable little bookmarks to stick in the copies of CT Fash. Of course, I forgot to grab one for myself! :-)

Unfortunately I have to go to a board meeting today for my local RWA chapter. I'm going to be soooo tired.

To brain dead for Question of the Day. It'll return tomorrow, I promise. If you're dying to answer something, Diana has a question for you on Comfort Films.

Oh and you can see from Alison Kent's blog, I've been "TAGGED". I promise to respond to that later today or tomorrow AM at the latest. :-) I know exactly who's going to get tagged next!!

I lurvveee dancing to eighty's music. I stopped dancing for a long time after I had the babies... who wants to dance like a prancing pear? But now that I am (more or less) back in shape I like it again.
